Road tires

Intended for use in the city and on the motorway, these are high-performance tires designed to ensure heavy cars perform efficiently in wet asphalt (with a little tread pattern designed to expel large amounts of water), or hard braking.

Responsiveness, comfort, and mileage are the main qualities of these tires. They are available in both summer and winter versions, with silica compound and a tread composed of deep grooves, spaced plugs, and blades.

Off road tires - Mud Terrain

If you are an adventure lover and want to get the most traction on rough terrain made of mud, rock or sand, then Mud Terrain tires are the best choice for you.

They have an intricate structure: the tread is made up of very deep (13mm-17mm) tread blocks on the central and lateral side, which allow greater grip on rock and mud, while the carvings avoid gravel banding as it could compromise on adherence.

The compounds are designed to give more resistance to the rubber, avoiding tears and slippage, while the sides are reinforced with steel cloths, to prevent sharp objects from tearing or piercing them.

This peculiarity makes the tires heavier (about 20% more than a normal tire) and compromises comfort, with an increase in noise while driving.

NB: due to the lower hold on the asphalt, its use on the road is not recommended.

All Terrain tires

They are designed to be efficient on all types of tracks (both on the road and off-road) and for all seasons.

The All Terrains have a tread composed of extremely carved tread blocks and a design reminiscent of road tires. The structure and sides are reinforced to prevent sharp objects from affecting the journey.

Most of those on the market are homologated for the winter season and bear the inscription M + S (Mud & Snow) on the side.

Make your choice!

Everything depends on the type of track you need to tackle which includes intricate detailing, choice of structure, compounds and the type of tread developed.

Important: the tires for SUVs and 4x4 off-road vehicles must be fitted with the same type, the same size and the same manufacturer for both axles.

The use of different tires affects the operation of the traction system, causing it to malfunction and exposing it to accelerated wear. Some cars have an integrated protection system. Such as, in the event of a difference in the diameter of the tires, where it prevents the activation of 4 × 4 tractions or limits its functions.

However, there are exceptions to the rule: some manufacturers provide different sizes for the front and rear tires, so we advise you to always check the vehicle registration document or ask your trusted tire dealer.

For uniform wear, it is recommended to cross them according to the manufacturer's instructions (at least every 10,000 - 15,000km), and periodically check the pressure.

In case your SUV Tyre is not 4 × 4, you can buy the normal tires designed to support the specific weight and optimized for the vehicle, so as to obtain maximum performance.
